Greer boys play away Tuesday in playoff opener

Published on Saturday, February 11, 2012

Greer’s boys basketball team will begin play in the State 3A playoffs just as coach Jeff Neely wanted, coming off a small, but nonetheless, a two-game winning streak.

The Yellow Jackets, the No. 3 seed in Region III will play at Fort Mill Tuesday night at 7 p.m. Greer is 14-11 and Fort Mill, the No. 2 seed in Region IV is 16-7.

Greer is the only team to beat No. 1-ranked Eastside this season.  LaBrian’s near half-court three-point shot at the end of the game gave Greer a 61-59 win on Dec. 30.

If Greer wins its first round game the second game will be at No. 1 see Eastside on Friday, unless Walhalla pulls a big upset of the top-ranked Eagles on Tuesday. All games are 7 p.m. unless noted.

LaBrian Shiflet, who scored 23 points Thursday night is Greer’s leading scorer and averages over 27 points a game. Dre Terry has shown signs of being a top scorer, with his 27-point production last Tuesday night an example. Terry scored 12 points against Blue Ridge. 

“Our goal was to win this game (SCA) and get into the playoffs on a positive note,” Neely said after Tuesday’s game. He said a win over Blue Ridge would give the players an extra boost of confidence.

Greer beat Blue Ridge Thursday night 67-47 in its final regular season game. The Yellow Jackets eased pass a pesky Spartanburg Christian Academy on Tuesday night in the seniors’ final regular season game at Greer High School.

The Greer girls did not make the playoffs.
